Discover opportunities in travel retail liquor sector
The recent history of travel retail has been peppered with periodic crises such as the abolition of intra-EU travel retail in 1999. The latest economic downturn is just the latest. Nevertheless, the liquor industry has been able to grow the overall value of travel retail liquor in recent years. The combined impact of these various adverse developments forced the liquor industry into a re-think. Either it changes the way it does business or its faced long-term decline.
The more enlightened liquor suppliers and operators are endeavouring to raise penetration and conversion rates - both woefully low - of traditional and non-traditional consumers. This represents an enormous opportunity, still to be fully tapped.
The good news is that the underlying travel retail liquor business remains healthy. The long-term forecast is one of continued growth in travel and tourism.
Coming soon: the latest report from just-drinks/IWSR will provide you with background, analysis and insight into the global travel retail liquor sector.

The processing, the ingredients, the high alcohol by volume content, all contribute to a more expensive product in general.
This report is written with a focus on the next two years, following in-depth analysis of NPD, branding and marketing activity that has occurred in the global spirits market over the past three to four years. The report offers actionable strategies for spirits brands with insight into new product launches, marketing campaigns and flavours/ingredients developments.

Innovations in healthier alcoholic drinks: healthy positioning strategies, case studies and future opportunities
Consumption per head is falling in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, the UK, as well as Japan and many other countries, and this trend is expected to continue over at least the next five years. There is also a shift taking place in the types of alcohol consumed. The consumption of beer/cider/FABs is declining in most western countries whereas wine is generally perceived as a healthier alcoholic drink and so consumption in many countries is rising.
We have already seen the emergence of significant low/no alcohol and low/no calorie segments. Expect to see growth in organic/natural, low/no carbohydrate and functional segments, as well as more responsible drinking campaigns and a marketing focus on quality over quantity.

Asian speciality drinks - Japan
Asian speciality drinks are dominated by Asian still RTD tea products, with green tea the most significant product within. A combination of market saturation, a cooler summer in 2009 as well as consumers looking to cut costs by avoiding the RTD category and making their own beverages at home all contributed to a significant slide in sales for this sector and consequently the category as a whole.

Tea - India
Commodity prices of tea were very dynamic and all players had to increase their unit prices in 2009. The rise in prices has resulted in loose tea losing out to small local tea manufacturers, as it has been able to absorb the rise in costs. The price points of local tea players have been close to those of loose tea, and as such these small regional players have seen some growth. There has also been a continuous shift of consumers from unbranded loose tea to branded packet tea.
